Former super lightweight and welterweight world champion Hatton returns to the ring in his home city of Manchester for the first time in 10 years this Saturday, taking on one of the greatest players of all time.
Barrera is a former threeweight world champion and a member of the International Boxing Hall of Fame, with a career that has spanned rivalries with Naseem Hamed, Erik Morales, Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao.
The run-up to their match, which follows the fight for the world title between Natasha Jonas and Marie-Eve Dicaire, live on Sky Sports Area and Sky Sports Main Eventcontinues with a workout that you can watch live here from 13:00.
“It’s a party,” Hatton told Sky Sports before this game. “In the end I’m a fan [of Barrera].
“I’ve always known how good he was. It will be a real pleasure to share the ring with him and find out first hand how good he really was. That’s a treat for myself.”
Both fighters have been training hard for their exhibition at the Manchester Arena and Barrera is delighted to be sharing a ring with someone he considers a friend and also someone he respects as a boxer.
“We’re two boxing legends, so we know what it takes to get in the ring,” said Barrera. “We know the respect.
“However, I was a little shocked to see Ricky posting all his progress, all his training routines and his boxing, I can see he’s starting to get into great shape.
“I’m also training hard. It will be a good exhibition, it will be a good fight for the people.”
Watch the Hatton vs Barrera exhibit and the Jonas vs Dicaire show this Saturday, live on Sky Sports Arena from 7pm and Sky Sports Main Event at 10pm.
